Today we are going to talk about the importance of getting your battery pack warm in the colder months. As we are now in Winter many Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoe owners will see SLOWER charge speeds and this is down to there packs not being warm at the time of plugging in now the renault zoe does have a small battery heater that kicks in when charging however unlike Tesla Model 3, Model S or Model X it won't preheat the pack as your drive to a charger. So for example on the Model 3 if your driving to a supercharger and set on the satnav the car will know that the battery will need some heat to charge at MAX speed so starts to prewarm the pack ready for the supercharger! So this winter my advise to BMW i3 and Zoe owners or other electric car owners who don't have a preheating battery pack is drive it like you stole it otherwise your see slow charge speeds in winter.
